QuickApp adding return character in label


Recommended Posts

I am creating a QA to list doors that are still open when I switch on the alarm. And I want to display the doors that are still open on the QA interface, one below the other. 

I have been trying to insert a return character in the text to be inserted in the label with self:updateView() in order to achieve a nice list of doors. But whatever I try to insert in the string to be displayed (\n, \r, string.char(13), <br \> etc) the separate lines remain on one line in the label.

 

What is the correct procedure to insert a CR in this case? Or is there an alternative like dynamically adding labels to the QA?

 

Thanks

Here is an example from @tinman, in this case to show multiple lines of rain forecast in one label.

 

local datapoints = "Expectation for next 90min in ㎜/𝚑 \n\n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "15:05 = 0.0 - \n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "15:10 = 0.1 - |\n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "15:15 = 0.2 - ||\n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "15:20 = 1.2 - ||||||||||||\n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "15:25 = 2.5 - |||||||||||||||||||||||||\n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "15:30 = 5.5 - |||||||||||||||||||||||||+\n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "15:35 > 9.9 - |||||||||||||||||||||||||+\n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "15:40 = 2.3 - |||||||||||||||||||||||\n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "15:45 = 1.5 - |||||||||||||||\n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "15:50 = 1.0 - ||||||||||\n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "15:55 = 0.5 - |||||\n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "16:00 = 0.1 - |\n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "16:05 = 0.0 - \n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "16:10 = 0.0 - \n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "16:15 = 0.1 - |\n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "16:20 = 0.2 - ||\n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "16:25 = 0.4 - ||||\n"
    datapoints = datapoints .. "16:30 = 0.3 - |||\n"    
    self:updateView("label", "text", datapoints)

 

The view in the "EDIT" mode is different from the view from the dashboard and mobile app.

This was my problem. I didn't check it in the mobile app, just in the editor....
